Cleveland - A Cleveland man was indicted for selling fentanyl and heroin that caused a fatal overdose in Fairview Park last summer.

28-year-old Devontae Payne has been charged with one count of distribution of fentanyl and heroin, one count of distribution of heroin, one count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and two counts of use of a communication facility to facilitate a felony drug offense.

Payne allegedly sold a mixture of fentanyl and heroin to a person who fatally overdosed in Fairview Park on August 9th, 2018, according to the indictment.
